So I had my tablet plugged in for charging, when my son got tripped through the wire and the tablet fell on the floor. It was not a big fall and the tablet kept working just fine, however I now realized that it has not been charging since then and now my battery is drained out.
So I need suggestions/tips on what should I be doing to get it fixed ?
I have already tried a different charged and the result is still the same, so now I am thinking of opening the tablet up, in which case, can someone advise me on what should I be looking for when I open it up( I am hoping its simply a case of loose wire and nothing else)
Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.

Hmmm, not sure if this helps, but on my original ZT-180 10" tablet, the solder joints of where you plug the charger into on the tablet is damaged, two of the four joints don't make contact to the board, and I need to wiggle the plug (on the tablet side) till the broken joints make contact for it to charge (I don't have soldering skills, so the two times i tried to solder it back only lasted for a day or two).... And of course, check the battery wires where they are soldered to the board...

probably your A/C socket inside the tablet broke or moved back from the solder joints.
You can repair it if you have solder skills.
Open the tablet and remove the logic board and turn it.
if it moved back, you can just solder the joints again.

If it broke, it probably broke into 2 parts.
Put the 2 parts together again, solder the joints again and use a little glue for the plastic outside.
Just a little, because you don't want to glue the inside.
And i always use a little dot of glue from a glue gun behind the A/C socket, so it will not move back anymore
also again not to much, or the logic board will not fit in place anymore.

^thanks a lot for the help, yes it indeed was the plastic inside which broke, for now I have used tape to put it together but obviously does not sound very lasting solution, so I will have to put the glue, however like you said I am scared of putting glue as the part which broke is so tiny, that I am scared I will spill the glue over :)
but once again thanks for the help
